Playful yet practical children's bedrooms, designed to adapt with their owners changing needs.

|Shortlisted Northern Design Awards 2022
We were delighted to be asked by a family who we previously designed nurseries for to create grown up rooms for their children’s developing personalities and needs. Their request was that the children could grow with the room designs. Flexible bespoke design is something we always work into our designs especially kids rooms which need to work extra hard as they develop in age and requirements.
Their daughter’s desire for lots of colour and pattern kept our team happy and she was thrilled with the outcome. Our bespoke headboard and scatter cushions sit pride of place with our chosen accessories and furniture, all picked with our client in mind. Her parents are thankful for this space as it provides lots of storage to keep the room tidy and organised as well as a built in desk.
For their little boy’s bedroom, a fun as well as practical display/storage solution was required. We designed an imaginative integrated bed with a mix of hidden cupboard storage and open shelving. We designed a den to double up as an alcove for a desk when he grows up and needs space to do homework. We allocated space elsewhere in the room for the bed to be moved when needed with sockets and lighting accommodated for later years. Graffiti inspired wallpaper and a burst of colour in the bespoke pendants, upholstery and furnishings have given him the “best bedroom ever!”
Children’s rooms need to be designed carefully and with three main considerations. Storage. Personality. Longevity.
When we design children’s bedrooms we always work to at least a 5-7 year life span. However electrics, storage and lighting are designed to last much longer with just the decor and loose furnishings to be adapted to suit their next stage. It’s this planning and detailing our design studio excels in, creating homes for our clients to effortlessly live their lives in and in future years as their families and lives evolve.
These clients were a dream, allowing us to create colorful havens for their children. Practicality was still a main priority. We worked hard to create bespoke joinery which will last.
